I'm sure I have quite a few readers who are college students, and I know I have tons of readers who are moms to college students. Because of this, I am so excited to let you all know about CampusBookRentals.com. This wonderful site offers college textbook rentals that can save you up to 90% off regular bookstore prices! I went to college myself and I really wish I had known about this service when I was!
Here's a great example: The Legal Environment of Business and Online Commerce texbook has a list price of $187.67 and currently costs $89.81 on Amazon. With CampusBookRentals, you could rent this book for as low as $17.89 for the summer or $20.57 for the entire semester, saving you 90%! Click here to see a complete price comparison.
Saving you money isn't the only perk this website offers:
- Free shipping both ways: What's the point of scoring a great deal when you have to pay outrageous shipping costs?! Really defeats the purpose and is a huge turn-off. Every textbook you rent includes free shipping to you, as well as a pre-paid envelope to ship it back for free when you're done with it!
- 30-day Guarantee: If you drop a class or maybe you ordered the wrong book, you have 30 days to return it and get your money back!
- Highlighting: You're allowed to highlight in your books like you would if you actually owned the book!
- Flexible rental periods: CampusBookRentals offers 3 different rental periods or you can choose your own rental period. If you need the book a little longer, you can take advantage of the 15-day grace period.
- Rental extension or re-renting: You have the ability to extend your rental up to 30 days longer or re-rent yours books for 30% less than the original rental price.
- Buy books: If after you rent a book and realize it would be better of owning it instead, you can purchase the book at a prorated price: the difference between what you already paid in rental fees and the value of the book.
- Operation Smile: This is my favorite perk. With every book rented, CampusBookRentals will donate a portion of proceeds to Operation Smile, an organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it.
- And many other perks: Monthly giveaways, textbook scholarships, ability to sell your books and a refer-a-friend program, just to name a few!
